Once considered too old, real estate queen Ivy Lee finds love at 49 and will marry later this month
In 2006, real estate queen Ivy Lee made headlines in The Sunday Times when she revealed that she had been rejected by a dating agency because she was considered too old.
Today, she is having the last laugh. The 49-year-old millionaire will be marrying her 52-year-old beau after a whirlwind courtship that saw him proposing just four days after they met.
On one Saturday in February last year, the chief executive of real-estate company Ivy Lee Realty was introduced to managing director Chua Choy Soon.
They started texting each other the following Monday. And just three days later, Mr Chua asked Ms Lee to be his wife - via SMS.
